Misery and Short Life Rumbles through Kenwood

Misery and Short Life Rumbles through Kenwood

Never forget, Minneapolis is still a major railroad junction. This is the Twin Cities & Western line and that is three of their eight engines heading westbound through Kenwood on what used to be the Minneapolis and St. Louis Railroad’s main line out of the city. Their yards used to be where the Sam’s club is now, which is where St. Louis Park got it’s name. One of their lines went through the town in South Dakota that my dad grew up in. Out there, it had the nickname ‘Misery and Short Life Railroad’ — from the abbreviation ‘M & St. L RR’ on the engines.

    Very nice photo. It doesn’t look like that train should fit next to that tiny wooden fence.
